"I will never let people down, I will not let it affect or hinder me from performing my duties as a minister, MP or party leader."
—Health Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek
If I am going to watch some pornographic videos, I think I'll make sure that I choose those featuring young, beautiful and sexy couples. I doubt that I will ever waste my time on watching a 60-year old man having sex. But of course I suppose some people will watch it anyway out of curiosity.
People sometimes forget that ministers are also humans; and humans make mistakes. But it is strange that most of us impose a higher "standard" from people like the Health Minister—that he is not supposed to blunder the way he did with a young woman not even half of his age. The majority of us expect a more respectable behaviour from this guy.
I must find out the name of the hotel wherein the CCTV was installed for the recording of the minister's adventures, so that I will know which hotel to avoid when and if I ever visit Johor. Not that I have plans to be as adventurous as the minister any time soon. Who knows, when I am 60, I might just be tempted to do so?
It was very brave of the Health Minister to admit publicly that he was the main star of the DVD. But I wonder if that bravery was merely a damage-control measure—that it's better to come clean about the DVD, because the truth was going to surface in the end anyway. There might just be a chance that if he admits the matter now, he might be able to salvage whatever trust his supporters still have for him. And I wonder if he would have readily come forward with such admission had there been no CCTV installed in the hotel room.
But to err is human; to forgive is divine...
Will his supporters forgive him? Bill Clinton's supporters did; so perhaps the good doctor will also be forgiven by his supporters.
One hour session, and several sexual positions. Sounds like the guy can still perform extremely well in bed at the age of 60—it makes me blush! I'm in my early forties, and I'm unable to achieve a one-hour session! I obviously have a lot to learn from the good doctor.
I think the minister was very brave to say that "I will never let people down...", because actually I'm sure a lot of people, especially his wife, must be feeling that they've been let down by this guy right now. But if it were me, I will forgive the minister. As I said, he is only human after all. It is not easy to fight the temptation of a twenty-something woman.
So what's next? Do we get a video clip on something more dramatic by another BN minister? Always a lot of fun before the general election, huh?
